    A few questions I hope you can answer. I see in the fine print tha the promotional value ends on Sept 18th. We’re currently getting our KC Star from the Groupon deal a while back, and that ends in June. Does that mean after the last paper I receive, I can wait 30 days and then activate my living social deal, as long as it’s by Sept 18th?

      That is something I am not sure about. I would call the KC Star and ask about before you wasted your money, however, it sounds like you could do that.

    I noticed that there is a link on the bottom of the fine print that says this is only valid in certain zip codes! Of course, mine is not included! So definitely take a look at that before you purchase.

    I tried to call and find out the delivery fee and the lady, presumably in India, had no idea what I was talking about with this deal. Any estimates on the price of delivery? Are we talking $10 or $50?

    It says the “subscription price includes a separate charge for delivery” that would infer that the delivery fee is part of the price paid for the subscription. Otherwise it would read “subscription price does not include a separate charge for delivery.”
